It may surprise you to know that much of the product you apply to your skin remains on the surface of your epidermis.

In some cases, this is a good thing as the outer layer of your skin, and the protective lipid barrier needs support from the environment.

A well-formulated moisturiser remains on the surface, shielding the skin from environmental stress, assisting in the retention of your natural moisture while alleviating the feeling of dryness and dehydration.

But, that’s only one aspect of an effective skincare routine.

If you want to repair and rejuvenate the skin, then adding serum formulations to your daily routine is an excellent idea.

Formulations that contain retinol, vitamin C and B3, as well as peptides and antioxidants all, go a long way in giving your skin what it needs to reboot and rejuvenate.

And here’s where the problem lies.

Keeping things out is an essential function of the skin. So getting an active ingredient into the deeper layers of the skin is going to take a little bit of prompting.

One of the best-known ways to ensure your skincare ingredients are reaching the dermis is by dermal rolling at home.

Dermal rolling at home is effortless, takes no time at all and when done correctly is relatively painless.

What’s happening whey you dermal roll your skin at home?

Tiny invisible, microchannels are temporarily created in the skin for long enough to allow your active ingredients to seep down into the deeper layers where they’re needed to support collagen synthesis, DNA Repair and proper cell function.

For the best results, you should use a dermal roller every night; however, be aware dermal rolling can bring about short-term reactions to some of the active ingredients in your serums due to the efficacy of product penetration.

If this happens, reduce the frequency of dermal rolling until your skin has settled down.

However, don’t be deterred as your skin is going to benefit tremendously from the improved uptake in nutrition.

One of our favourite dermal rollers is O Cosmetics Skin Inject Dermal Roller, as it’s easy to use, long-lasting, durable and has recently been voted by beauty editors all around Australia as their favourite home rolling device.


O Cosmedics Skin Inject MTS (micro-needling therapy system) is a dermal roller (0.25mm) utilising 600 gamma-sterilised, stainless steel micro-needles to effectively and visibly rejuvenate and regenerate the skin’s natural healing response.

The independently rotating disks with advanced silicon suspension system provide the most comfortable and beneficial treatment possible.

We all love a bit of DIY, and dermal rolling at home is an excellent way to improve your skin. It’s important to note; a dermal home roller is different from medical-needling for collagen induction a procedure carried out in our clinic.

When dermal rolling is used at home, it’s important to use light pressure. Despite what you may see on the internet, you should not be using pressure to induce a wound or redness.

When you purchase your O Cosmedics Skin Inject Dermal Roller, we’ll assist you with how best to use it at home and the best serums for daily use to improve your home routine.

If you’d like to know more about dermal rolling at home or if you’d like to book a consultation to find out more about medical-needling for collagen induction, you can get in touch with us on 02 8034 2140 or book an appointment online here.
